Hi, my situation is as follows My wife was working in US on a L1-A visa. I converted from H1 to L2 (along with EAD) in August 2015. I-797 for both my wife and I was valid until 2nd Feb 2017. We left the US for Canada on 8th November 2015. After a year, 25th Nov 2016, a new petition (new I-797 form for my wife) was filed, my wife’s L1A visa and my L2 visa was approved at US consulate in Toronto, Canada. We are now back in US and I would like to apply for EAD. Questions: In form I-765, there are two checkboxes (one for Permission to accept employment or second renewal to accept employment). I wanted to enquire, which checkbox do I need to select i.e. to select Permission to accept employment or renewal to accept employment. Please advise. Do I need to send my previous approved I-797 petition for Class A18 (EAD)? Only reason I am asking is that my wife is on a new L1-A petition & visa (not a renewal) and I am on new L-2 petition & visa. Thank you for your kind help.
